It may be time to change your password yet again, as two more video game companies have recently announced security breaches, and both suggest changing your password if you have an account with them.
Eurogamer reports that Konami suffered more than 35,000 unauthorized logins recently, using IDs and passwords leaked from a third party. It says it has strengthened its security and raised its monitoring level, and recommends that all Konami users change their password through the official site.
Meanwhile, a post on the Bohemia Interactive site announced last week that hackers downloaded a database of usernames, e-mail addresses, and encrypted passwords. Credit card information was not affected, as it is stored by a third party. Bohemia also recommends changing passwords, as a precaution.
